How to Make a DIY Father’s Day Magic Card (Template Included)
This Father’s day magic card is the coolest thing ever!
You might have seen the I dad one before, but we’ve come up with a pretty unique one that will tell the dad in your house that they are a hero. Who doesn’t like to hear that?
These magic cards might seem a little tricky to make, but once you make your first one you won’t be able to stop! We make it even easier as you can grab the printable template at the end of this tutorial..
So what’s the magic all about? Let’s check it out….
When the hero card is inserted, all that you can see is the silhouette of a man along with the word my dad.
As you pull out the card, a colored version of the picture begins to appear. Pretty neat isn’t it? Ohh but there is even more!!!
To make this card even more magical, the card, when you pull it out, reveals who the dad really is – a hero! With emblem and cape and all. Talk about awesome right? And you can even add details in the background to make the card pop even more. I think we can all agree this is the best DIY Father’s day card kids can make.
The I love dad is magic card is similar, with the difference that it doesn’t reveal any hidden elements (well unless you add them on your own). But it looks really nice too!
What you need
- our printable template (you can grab it at the end of the tutorial)
- heavier print paper
- heavier print paper in color / construction paper (we love Astrobrights paper)
- clear plastic (punched pockets for folders work well – go for clear glossy ones – other clear plastic foil works too)
- alcoholic marker
- coloring supplies
And the foil on top of the white paper (between white paper and the open part of the frame).
Push the card till the end.
If the card get’s stuck you might want to trim it on the sides a little. Push and pull the card a few times, to loosen it up – it will run smooth after a few uses.
Wonderful! You just made a Father’s Day Magic Card! You can also use stickers to decorate the frame to make it look just a bit sillier too.
